My wife and I married here May 23rd 1993. It is the oldest church in Switzerland, has foundations dating back to the 5th century, and tells of over 1500 years of history. This year we will be celebrating our 25th anniversary.

Place full of history , great for families to spend one full day in nature and relaxing. Will come again ! Too bad the church doesn't have a ramp for handicapped people and kids carts.

very very tourist oriented but usually not so many people - a little bit out of your usual way, but if you go to the grottes de vallorbe - a nice stop

Exemplary restoration not only of the Monastery but of the whole village. Lovely and peaceful square. Great walks for pedestrian. Great idea for road signs and parking obstacles made of metalwork. Worth the detour.

Beautiful valley, beautiful village, beautiful and well maintained very early convent and church. Very solemn church. Explore the whole complex and look at the very old rooms and spaces near the cafe.
